Test shots with today's arrival. The Pentax 135mm f3.5 SMC Takumar on the X-T1. Definitely a keeper.

That old lens is definitely a keeper. Nice pictures.

Thanks. My wife passed away in December, and I have been too depressed to play with my lenses and cameras, but flowers are blossoming again, and I have started a process of trying out all my 135mm lenses, taking a few photos here and there. 135mm is not exactly the best focal length for flowers, of course.
I have been coming here a lot less in the last month so didn't see this message until now. I'm sorry to hear that, Ivan, and happy to see you have started something that will certainly help you heal your soul.

I have some 135mm glass but the most "interesting" of them is a Kenlock "with macro" that has a beautiful soft and halo effect that does wonders with portraits and flower shots. Not precisely a macro as advertised but it has its uses. Some manufacturers call that an "art" lens and ask an arm and a leg.
